DE CRAMER, K G M. Surgical uterine drainage and lavage as treatment for canine pyometra. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.3, pp.172-177. ISSN 2224-9435.

Pyometra is a common post-oestral syndrome in bitches. Classical treatment consists of either ovariohystorectomy or medical intervention. Surgical uterine drainage and lavage via direct trans-cervical catheterisation using a 5 % povidone-iodine in saline solution was performed successfully in 8 bitches with pyometra. All bitches conceived and whelped without complications subsequent to this treatment. It is concluded that this method offers an effective alternative treatment for canine pyometra with shorter recovery times as well as good clinical recovery and pregnancy rates in bitches destined for further breeding.

Palabras clave : dog; pyometra; uterine lavage.
